Level of study: Undergraduate
The integrated Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) and Master of Engineering (BE (Hons)/ME) is the first 5 year engineering degree in Australia to integrate a semester placement, either in industry or research, into a degree with the Master's level course work. This unique combination in an undergraduate degree will provide graduates with world class knowledge and skills in their field of study as well as an enhanced ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams and across fields. These are the attributes required to tackle current and future issues facing society and to create value for industry and society through innovation. BE(Hons)/ME graduates will have a head start in careers that require specialist skills and adaptability (e.g. in consulting, corporate/governmental advising or industrial research) or when applying for research higher degrees at the world's top research institutions.
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
This program combines studies in mechanical engineering with additional specialist study and project work in the aerospace and aviation industry. Aerospace engineering is concerned with the design, manufacture and operation of aircraft, launch vehicles, satellites, spacecraft and ground support facilities. It is a particularly challenging discipline because of the need for light-weight but highly reliable aircraft and spacecraft. Cutting-edge technology and design are key in this field. Aerospace engineering projects tend to be multidisciplinary in nature because of the scientific content of many of the payloads and the complex thermo-physical aspects of hypervelocity atmospheric flight. All workers in this field must be adept at incorporating technology from outside their immediate specialty.
